Congratulations to the Waubonsie Valley Health Department on
receiving Blue Ribbon recognition.
The health department just completed the yearlong Blue
Ribbon application and evaluation process.
Teachers Millie Shepich, Becky Goff and Adrienne Ryba spent the year reflecting,
organizing and documenting the health program and how it best impacts the students
at Waubonsie Valley. The process
included evaluation of all aspects of the health program from details of daily
lessons and teaching strategies to how the health program is imbedded and
supported in the school. After
completing the documentation and application process, there was a school site
visit by the Blue Ribbon committee on March 12.
During the full day visit, the evaluation team observed classes,
interviewed teachers, support staff, administration, students and parents.
The evaluation team took their observations and
documentation back for consideration and have determined that the Waubonsie
Valley Health Program is a Blue Ribbon Program.
Thank you to the health team on their hard work and
dedication to the students of Waubonsie Valley and their continued commitment
to promoting health education.
Congratulations on this recognition.
Special thank you to Mr. Stipp and the Waubonsie Valley
administrative team on the continued support of the health curriculum. Additionally thanks to the many staff,
students and parents that were interviewed on the day of the site visit.
